Lycoming County Divorce Lawyers

If you and your spouse agree on most aspects of your divorce, you may file for no-fault divorce. Although the divorce can be final in 90 days, that is only the tip of the iceberg. After the actual dissolution of marriage, there are still numerous details that must be resolved, such as property division, spousal support and, if there are children involved, child support and custody. We also proudly represent clients in all types of same-sex divorce and separation matters.

Attorney Sharon Mclaughlin will work closely with you throughout the divorce process, walking you through each step. Our lawyers will help you resolve the issues of your divorce. Most disputes typically fall into two legal aspects:

  • Economic aspect: The economic aspect of a divorce includes the division and distribution of all marital property. Everything that has been accumulated during the course of the marriage is considered marital property and must be divided during the divorce process. Our lawyers help clients with division of assets, and we also represent clients in the negotiations and documentation involving prenuptial agreements.
  • Custody aspect: The custody aspect of the divorce resolves the monetary disputes surrounding the kids and spousal support. Child custody, child support and alimony arrangements are all determined. People are often shocked by the amount that they must pay or receive, but the state formulation takes all available income into account.

While we don’t want you to be thinking of divorce before you’ve even gotten married, we also advocate for people to protect their financial interests with prenuptial agreements.

Other Types Of Child Custody Cases

Our experienced lawyers also help grandparents with child custody issues and help advocate for the rights of fathers who are fighting to gain custody, visitation or a modification of their custody arrangement.


Another important family law service we provide involves adoptions. We help clients in every aspect of adoptions, including stepparent and grandparent adoptions, same-sex adoptions and any other type of adoption matter.
